|As a distributor of electrical and electronic equipment, we understand the need for safe disposal of waste to care for the environment.|
If you’re buying a new electrical or electronic item, we will recycle your old one. In conjunction with our manufacturing suppliers, we offer our customers the facility to return to us any unwanted items for safe disposal on a like-for-like basis. For example if you purchase a new cordless drill from us, we will accept your old cordless drill for disposal, free of charge. This must be done within 28 days of purchase.
Customers will not incur any costs for the disposal of unwanted items that are returned in-store to our trade counter. However, if the new item was purchased online, customers are responsible for any postage costs incurred in returning items for disposal.
Should this facility be needed we can be contacted on 01733-343031
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste.
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed‐out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
This policy is implemented in accordance with the Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive 2013
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take‐back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like‐for‐like basis.
We may revise and update these terms & conditions at any time. Therefore we advise you to periodically review this statement to keep up to date with any relevant changes.
